Why Georgia Tech Will Win
All of a sudden, Georgia Tech rose up and showed just how good it is and could be with a dominant performance against Florida State. It pushed Virginia and wasn’t bad against Duke on the road, and then everything kicked in with the 76-65 victory over the Noles.
It’s a terrific passing team that keeps everything moving on one end, and forces a whole lot of mistakes on the other – both of those things overcame a relatively mediocre shooting day. The team doesn’t make a slew of mistakes, and Louisville doesn’t force them. The Cards don’t have the type of offense to put this away quickly, but …
Why Louisville Will Win
Louisville owns the glass and should beat up the Yellow Jackets, especially on the defensive end. No, the team doesn’t hit a lot from the outside and doesn’t force a bunch of mistakes, but it makes up for it by forcing one-and-outs on the defensive boards.
This isn’t a big offensive rebounding Georgia Tech team, and it’s not a great shooting team over the last few games. If the Cardinals can clamp down a bit and force the Yellow Jackets to hit fewer than 45% from the field, they’ll grab all the misses.
What’s Going To Happen
Georgia Tech is amazing at home and struggles on the road. Louisville is struggling lately, period.
The Cardinals have to get to the line and need to manufacture points, but the Yellow Jackets don’t get hit with a ton of fouls and should come up with enough takeaways to survive a good battle on the road.
